Indian 2: Kamal Haasan’s Look sparks age discussion, Shankar Responds

Indian 2: Kamal Haasan’s Look sparks age discussion, Shankar Responds. Indian 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the 1996 classic Indian, is all set to hit the screens on July 12. Directed by filmmaker S. Shankar, the film boasts a star-studded cast, with Anirudh Ravichander composing the music. But what caught everyone’s attention in the recently released trailer was Kamal Haasan’s various avatars as Senapathy.

Senapathy’s Age Mystery

Kamal Haasan reprises his role as Senapathy, the former freedom fighter-turned-vigilante who fights against corruption. However, fans and social media enthusiasts couldn’t help but wonder: How old is Senapathy in Indian 2? After all, he’s seen performing daring stunts and easily taking on evil forces.

In the Indian film franchise, Senapathy was born in 1918. It will make him 106 years old in 2024, the year in which “Indian 2” is set. There was a lot of discussion and memes on the internet about this age theory, with some people speculating that it might be Chandru (a character played by Kamal Haasan in “Indian” and killed by Senapathy) pretending to be the iconic vigilante.

Shankar’s Explanation

In a press meet, director Shankar shed light on Senapathy’s age. He drew an intriguing parallel: “There is a martial arts master in China who, at the age of 120, performs martial arts, flies, and kicks. Senapathy, too, is a master of martial arts called Varma art.” So, while Senapathy’s age may raise eyebrows, his prowess in combat remains unmatched.

Where to Watch Indian?

For those who want to revisit the original, Indian (1996) is available for streaming on Aha Tamil. The film features Kamal Haasan in dual roles—father and son.
